MNA Feature Desk: On World Teachers’ Day, celebrated yearly on October 5, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will focus on the professors, teacher, researchers and others who otherwise provide educational services to students at institutions of higher learning.
The work of these educators will be the subject of a daylong series of seminars at the Organization’s Headquarters, reported news agency.
The empowerment of teachers emerged as a priority when the United Nations adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Goal for Education, said a statement from UNESCO.
It requires teacher to enjoy professional independence, freedom and the tools needed to deliver quality education, which must take into account learners’ circumstances, needs and expectations.
The international community undertook to provide universal primary and secondary education by 2030, and it is estimated that countries will need to recruit 68,8 million primary and secondary education teacher to make this target, added the statement UNESCO.
